SRLA will attend mass on Monday, December 7th and Tuesday, December 8th according to the following schedule:

Kindergarten-third grade: Monday, 12/7 at 10:30 am

IN GRATITUDE
Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us.

Dear Parents,

St. Rose of Lima Academy will be proactive and take steps to minimize in-person contact at school in the coming weeks.

  • Upon return from Thanksgiving Break, all classes, school-wide, learning will be virtual for Monday, 11/30 and Tuesday, 12/1/2020. The two days will run from 8:10-12:10 each day and a special schedule will be sent out next week. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 12/2, 12/3, and 12/4, will be in-seat and full days.
  • In addition, upon return from Christmas break, the week of 1/4-1/8/2021 will be on-line as well.  Again, the week will run from 8:10-12:10 each day and a second special schedule will be sent out closer to the break.
  • Finally, aftercare will not run after 11/20/2020 until we return in-seat on 1/11/2021. So our last day of aftercare for this year will be Friday, November 20, 2020.

I urge every member of the SRLA community to do everything possible to help stop the spread of this virus by continuing to wear a mask, practice social distancing and thorough handwashing (20 seconds, using soap and water), as well as sanitizing common-use surfaces as you plan your holiday time.

We all have a role to play in staying healthy, stopping the spread of COVID-19 and getting this pandemic under control. Please remain vigilant and do all that you can do to protect yourself and those around you during this critical time. I send my best wishes to you and your family for a happy and restful Thanksgiving break.

Sincerely,

Principal Underwood
